iOS

There are actually two ways that you can add an email to your iOS device. With the built-in iOS Mail App, or using the Mircosoft Outlook App. We recommend the Outlook App as it had more features and sync better with office 365. But you can use whichever one suits your needs.

 

Outlook Mail App

  1. Download the Outlook App - Click Here 
  2. Once installed you will need to launch the app
  3. From here you will be asked to type in an email address.
    • Please put in your Franklin College email (john.smith@franklincollege.edu)
  4. Click "Add Account"
  5. You should then be prompted to enter your password on page with Old Main in the background.
    • Enter your FC password.
  6. Click "Sign In"
  7. When asked if you would like to add another account choose "Maybe Later" (Unless you would like to add your Gmail or other mail services here)
  8. That's it! You will now be signed in. 

 

If you are prompted to "Enable Notifications" please do. That way you can always be notified of any campus announcements!

 

Built-In iOS Mail App

 

  1. From the home screen launch the "Settings" application
  2. Scroll down until you see the section for "Passwords & Accounts"
  3. Click on that, then choose "Add Account"
  4. From the email providers that are listed, choose "Microsoft Exchange"
  5. In the email field put in your Franklin College email (john.smith@franklincollege.edu)
    1. The description is optional. But you can put something like "FC Mail"
  6. When the next box pops up, choose "Sign In".
  7. You should then be prompted to enter your password on page with Old Main in the background.
    • Enter your FC password.
  8. Then click "Sign In"
  9. Once signed in you will be asked what you want to sync (mail, contacts, calendars, etc.) by default these will all be enabled and synced. If you want to turn any of these off you can. Click "Save"
  10. That's it! You will not be signed in.

You can now open the iOS Mail App and start using your FC email.

 

Android

Comparable to iOS, Andriod will sometimes have a built-in email app. But due to the massive open-source nature of Andriod, and how many versions there are of it, we will not be covering those built-in apps. We will only be covering the official Microsoft Outlook App. This is actually recommended because of its integration with Office 365, and it's the ease of use.

 

  1. Download the Outlook App - Click Here 
  2. Once the app is installed and you have launched it you will be asked "Get Started" and enter your email address.
    • Enter your Franklin College email address (john.smith@franklincollege.edu)
  3. You should then be prompted to enter your password on page with Old Main in the background.
    • Enter your FC password.
  4. You will then be asked if you "Would like to add another account". Press skip, unless you want to add your personal Gmail or other mail services.
  5. You will then be guided through a brief tutorial on how to use the app. You can look at the guide or press "skip".
  6. That's it! You are now signed into your FC email on the Outlook App.

 

 

 

As always if you run into any issues please let us know!
